Now that the NHL's Olympic break has ended, the Nashville Predators resume their regular season schedule tonight with a trip to face the Chicago Blackhawks at the United Center. The Central Division rivals will face off at 7:30 p.m. CT, and the game will be televised locally on FSN South and broadcast on WNSR-SportsRadio 560.

Nashville has won the first five meetings of the season with Chicago, and is 7-0-1-0 since last losing to the Hawks on Feb. 11, 2004. This season the Predators have outscored the Hawks by a combined 28-7, and forward Scott Hartnell registered one of Nashville's two 2005-06 hat tricks in the most recent game on Feb. 4. Center Yanic Perreault notched four points (1g-3a) that night and goaltender Tomas Vokoun posted his second shutout of the season. Left wing Paul Kariya, who leads the Predators in scoring with 58 points in 58 matches, was hot heading into the break, scoring 11 points (2g-9a) in his last eight games.

The Blackhawks, who are led in scoring by center Tyler Arnason with 40 points (13g-27a) in 56 games, begin a three-game homestand with tonight's tilt. The club enters the showdown with Nashville having gone 1-4-2 in its last seven games. Winger Martin Lapointe, who was recently named captain in place of injured defenseman Adrian Aucoin, has posted two goals and two assists in Chicago's last four games.

The Predators will return home tomorrow night to face the Vancouver Canucks in a 7 p.m. contest at the Gaylord Entertainment Center. Tickets are still available for that game and can be purchased by calling (615) 770-PUCK, ordering online, or visiting the Gaylord Entertainment Center box office or any Ticketmaster outlet.
